What exactly is Reiki?

The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words – Rei and Ki. Rei is Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. Because of its infinite nature, it is all knowing. Ki is the energy that is inherent in all living things. When a person’s Ki is high, they will feel strong, confident, and ready to enjoy life and take on it’s challenges. When it is low, they will feel weak and are more likely to get sick. We receive Ki from the air we breath, from food, sunshine, and from sleep. Reiki energy has an intelligence of its own. It flows where it is needed, from practitioner to client and creates the healing conditions necessary for the individuals needs. It cannot be guided by the mind. The practitioner through training and practice becomes ‘attuned’ to give Reiki.
